The Mario files*

mariogarcetti.jpgAt left, mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti seeks an important endorsement (Photo posted on Facebook yesterday by my friend Dominic Ehrler). Mario the Goose -- AKA Maria the Goose -- is expected to make his announcement in support of Garcetti any time now as the Councilman was active in helping the gander secure a safe home at the L.A. Zoo about 13 months ago.

Though he no longer lives at Echo Park Lake, where he once walked daily with Dominic, Mario remains securely bonded with his human best friend, who visits him at the zoo regularly.

*Update: Dominic says the Garcetti "endorsement" photograph was taken several months ago, at Mario's zoo "debut." Below are some more mario zoo pics, courtesy of Dominic. At bottom, Dominic and Mario.
